Logitech C920 HD Pro Webcam Review

Logitech is at the forefront of the HD Webcam "prosumer" market. The first webcam I purchased was the Logitech C910 which I reviewed back in January 2012 and included on my list of must have equipment for podcasting.

The Logitech C920 HD Pro is like the big brother of the C910 and what caught my attention immediately is the built in tripod mount. I love this feature because I want the camera to be slightly elevate versus eye level. I purchased a little mini-tripod a few years ago for about 99 cents but its worth so much more now that I can use it with the C920 webcam.

Logitech C920 Webcam Feature list:

  • Full HD 1080 video
  • Facebook uploads with H.264
  • Dual microphones
  • 15 MP pics
  • Carl Zeiss Lens with 20-step autofocus

Even though the C920 has dual microphones, I don't recommend using the mic on any webcam to record the audio for your podcast or Google+ Hangouts. Personally I will continue to use my Samson C03U USB condenser mic to capture the audio for The Ms. Ileane Speaks Podcast, and my YouTube videos.

If you care about quality (and you really should) I'm sure you want a webcam that delivers the best quality at an affordable price. That's why I recommend purchasing the Logitech C920. I picked mine up from Amazon and at the time it cost around $85. 

What's your favorite webcam and where did you get it?
